(Meredith) - A man dressed as the Easter Bunny tried to break up a fight outside a Florida bar on Sunday and ended up throwing a few punches of his own.
Antoine McDonald, the man in the bunny suit, said he was bar-hopping with friends in downtown Orlando when he saw another man fighting a woman on the street.
"I got over there so I could break up the fight, and with me trying to break up the fight, he got on top of her and hit her," McDonald told WESH-TV.
McDonald's friend, Malik Rucker, claims he witnessed the unidentified man "spit" on the woman.
"She was defending herself, but he was hitting back," said Rucker.
Police arrived a short time later and dispersed the crowd. No one involved in the fight was arrested, according to the station. It's unclear what led to the altercation.
Footage of the brawl has since gone viral, with some speculating that it was just a hoax to get social media fame.
McDonald disputed those allegations, saying he was only trying to help.
"I just rushed over there. I didn't say, 'Hey, look at this!' No. I just rushed over there. The real deal. Nothing fake," he said.
